During start-up, early stage development and further, young companies have crucial needs for good management, assistance and coaching. Since the entrepreneur doesn’t always have the time or the academic backgrounds to perform adequately, the need for external assistance becomes crucial.
Here, RUEE’s vocation is to share its vast entrepreneurship knowledge with the emerging company.

Innovation and R&D management

Innovation is both crucial to guaranty the company’s development and complex to manage properly : managerial and technical know-how must indeed meet, which, given the possible gap between, might be very hard to reach.
Due to its wide fetched academic experience in the field of innovation management, RUEE is an appealing partner for safe business guidance in these fields.

SME Internationalisation

General business globalisation, EU enlargement, technical progress in communications technology opens vast international challenges not only for large firms.
SME must not be excluded from this development; exclusion would definitely condemn them to position exclusively on the necessarily limited proximity business.
The reasons why SME might be interested to go internationally are plentiful: access interesting manpower, consumer markets, tax environments, joint ventures, etc.
Based on its substantial experience in the field of SME internationalisation processes, RUEE represents a qualified partner with high added value for the SME.
